Figure skater You Young
Fifteen year-old figure skater You Young has become the first South Korean to win a gold medal in the sport at the Youth Winter Olympic Games underway in Lausanne, Switzerland.
You scored 140.49 points in her free skate on Monday, thanks to a clean triple axel in her opening sequence, for a total 214 points.
She is regarded as South Korea's best figure skater since Olympic champion Kim Yu-na.
The teen sensation is slated to compete in the World Championships in March.■
